My family loves this state park, and we have camped there several times. The beach is a very short bike-ride from the campsites, and the it is pristine and beautiful. The communities of WaterColor and Seaside are also short bike rides away (down the 30-A bike path), so restaurants and bars are easily accessible. The campground has two areas, one... More

This is a very clean beach. If you stay in Destin, it is only 25 minutes drive and it took you away from the crowded beach and traffic. The water is crystal clear and you can see many fishes in it. Make sure you take a few minutes to walk on a little trail next to the beach parking lot.... More

The beaches are what brings us back. This park has good RV sites and we can drive or walk to the beaches. Full hookups and clean sites.

The day we went here there was quite a bit of seaweed and the waves were rough so we didn't get in much. If you are looking for a less populated beach it is a good one to try and we probably would have enjoyed it more on a day with less waves and seaweed floating around. It is also... More

The most beautiful beach! Fantastic!! We had a manitee swim right by us..much faster than I'd imagined since I couldn't get my camera ready fast enough!! My hubby saw dolphins and a HUGE sea turtle swim up next to them when they took a fishing trip! I love Grayton beach and can't wait to get back!!!

Funky little area with beautiful beaches and dunes unlike anywhere else in the area. Don't miss a trip to the RED BAR- it is always a great place to grab a bite....but expect a wait.

Not real clear why they charge $5 per car to get in. It is basically just another beach--though a pretty one. But there are plenty of free public beaches in the area. Some small pavilions for groups but that is about it. Not worth the $$.

We stayed in Panama City Beach and wanted to get away from the crowds. Sure do wish I would have found this place first!!! The beach was beautiful, only four other people were there. Absolutely amazing. We're planning on staying here during our next trip to Florida

This is close to lots of activities. Nice trails take to you the beach. Some of the RV spots have water access. We enjoyed our stay and will return.
